Dilip Vengsarkar, a former senior selector for India, was furious with captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid over their team's elimination from the Asia Cup.

The Asia Cup tournament was likely to provide a sneak preview of the Indian side's final XI for the major event in Australia later this year after 10 months of experimenting for every position and role in the team for the T20 World Cup. However, it persisted until India, the defending champions and the overwhelming favourites, suffered a shock departure in the Super 4 stage of the multi-nation competition in the UAE. And former India chief selector Dilip Vengsarkar was furious with both Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid for his team's elimination from the Asia Cup.
Before losing to Babar Azam's team and Sri Lanka in the Super 4, India had a strong start, defeating Pakistan and Hong Kong in their group-stage matches. India lost their chance to secure a spot in the championship game despite their convincing 101-run victory over Afghanistan.While most observers did not place much significance on the losses, which occurred just three days apart and two months before the T20 World Cup, many were perplexed by India's decision to continue their experimenting at a competition like the Asia Cup. Vengsarkar was also one among them.

The illustrious batter highlighted to Khaleej Times that these experiments should have taken place in bilateral series rather than "major competitions" like the Asia Cup where one should focus on playing the right combination and winning games.

"The group is proceeding their investigations. They picked Dinesh Karthik, however they haven't played him, and afterward they played Ravichandran Ashwin interestingly yesterday (Tuesday) against Sri Lanka. Clearly, the group the executives needs to allow every one of the players an opportunity as they are attempting to track down their best XI for the following month's Reality Cup. However at that point this occasion is additionally vital. The Asia Cup is an exceptionally large competition. Winning matches in a competition like this is vital for the resolve of the group. Additionally, I believe having the triumphant combination is significant. As I said, the Asia Cup is an extremely huge occasion. You can explore perhaps in a two-sided series, yet the Asia Cups and the World Cup, these are significant competitions. In these competitions, you want to win, that is vital," he said.India will next play a progression of restricted overs matches against Australia and South Africa at home throughout the following 30 days before they leave for the World Cup.
